Remembering the Reformation

Event Date: 
07 Sep 2017 to 09 Sep 2017

The Reformation is deeply embedded in scholarly and popular consciousness as a critical watershed and turning point in Western history. The assumption that it constituted a decisive juncture has laid the foundation of enduring models of periodization. Yet, even as the 500th anniversary of Martin Luther’s 95 Theses approaches, the manner in which the Reformation came to be remembered as a chronological landmark has never been the subject of detailed scrutiny.
